    Default Battle damaged M35

    Here are some better pics of the helmet I posted last week.

    To me it looks like it has been white washed at one time, it also looks like it has some sort of thick paint in spots (I took a photo of one spot) I can't find a maker mark or a lot number so it must have been painted over. I also noticed that the holes are from shrapnel not bullets.

    The liner says something like, O.REICHEL LEMGEPELO/41,
    I know that's not spelled right but it's very hard to make out.

    Split pins dont seem to match paint but it seems all GIs like to get a shot or two in on anything Nazi.

    The paint is just worn off the split pins. And as I said above, the holes are NOT from bullets, they are from shrapnel.

    THOSE start out to be a perfectly round hole to be shrap IMOP.

    I'm not sure about that decal at all. Any chance of a better close up? The bullet holes are a bit suspect to me as well.

    Guy's I really don't think that the holes are from bullets, in the photos I admit they do look like bullet holes but when you are looking at it in person the holes are not even close to being round.

    But other than the holes what do you guys think?
    I agree with Isle of Wighter on the decal but I was wondering if it could just be faded?

    It looks more rubbed than faded and in many of the areas which would assist in it's identification !!

    Used and abused but I don't see anything suspicious personally.
    Has a good faded original decal.
